THE Fiji Law Society has refuted claims by the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum that some members of the private bar were not willing to provide legal aid services.

Responding to the claims made by the AG at the opening of the Pacific Regional Legal Aid Commission Conference in Natadola last week, FLS president Laurel Vaurasi said they fully supported initiatives that support access to justice for all Fijians.
